ronald reagan. one of the staunchest defenders of the second amendment. who wrote to congress in 1994 urging them, this is ronald reagan speaking, urging them to listen to the american public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacturer of military-style assault weapons. [ applause ] and finally, congress needs to help rather than hinder law enforcement as it does its job. we should get tougher on people who buy guns, with the expressed purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. and we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this. since congress hasn't confirmed a director of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms in six years, they should confirm todd jones who will be, who has been acting, and i will be nominating, for the post. [ applause ] and at a time when budget cuts are forcing many communities to reduce their police force, we should put more cops back on the job and back on our streets. let me be absolutely clear. like most americans, i believe the second amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. i

happened for a long time, 1985, i think ronald reagan was the last time. and what's really interesting, because president obama has to be sworn in tomorrow, and then he'll be sworn in again on monday, he actually is the first president since fdr to be sworn in four times. of course, don, fdr was sworn in four times because he served four terms. and that's not the case for president obama. you remember there was that number flub last time and it was redone out of an abundance of caution. >> look at all these moving hands. this place is getting crazy. they have moving advance coming in, part for the media, part for the festivities. part what the president is going to do. so it's really gearing up. look how beautiful the shot is. see the sunset? >> gorgeous. the capitol is a beautiful building and now it's almost a beautiful pink color right now. and that, of course, the west front of the building is where the inauguration will take place, right behind us. >> so what have you heard about the speech? >> the themes are set. we know that. there is still some major tweaking being

benghazi attack any more than george w. bush was responsible for the 9/11 attacks or ronald reagan was responsible for the attacks on our marine barracks in beirut which killed over 200 marines. and frankly whether it was called a terrorist attack or not, in the immediate aftermath as far as i'm concerned is irrelevant. we just have to make sure that it never happens again, so that in the future our people are protected. that's what i want to get out of all of this. so, madam secretary, we commend you for accepting all of the arb recommendations and welcome your commitment to begin implementing them by the time you leave the department. even before the arb submitted its conclusions, the department moved to address certain shortcomings through its increased security proposal, vast majority of the funding for this proposal would come from funds previously appropriated for lower priority programs. and i hope congress will move without delay to give the department the transfer authority it needs to start applying these changes. it is important to remember that security is not a one off end
